Gluten free yogurt cake

Torta di yogurt senza glutine

I love the simple cakes, this blog is full of this kind of cake, and this yogurt cake is always a hit.

I made it in a hurry for a dinner, and,  as always, I was busy with three things at a time.

It should be the twin of the lemon yogurt cake, but I had no lemons in the house so I flavored it with orange and l have served it with a blueberry sauce.

It has a little less flour and sugar than the first version and it’s incredible to see that a simple change could modify the texture of the cake which remains much softer.

I do not know wich one choose, maybe you try to di both and after tell me the one you prefer, for sure they are both easy to do, fast and thet go away in a flash …
